RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

Bob do you think a G45 will fly the TF GS Corsair. I don't want to bust the clouds but thats all I have on hand and I dont want to use one of my US 41s on it cause I'm saving them for my Zeroli B-25.

RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair
